About this Item

"A NEW REALITY FOR TODAY'S DEATH is about cognition, how any of us come to learn, come to believe, what we do about funerals, plastic flowers, death and especially dying. A NEW REALITY FOR TODAY'S DEATH is about why the great majority of Americans {as well as other countries} cannot accept THE RIGHT TO DIE WITH DIGNITY {DWD}. Three American states now have laws permitting someone who has a terminal disease to terminate his or her life, rather than be 'forced' {by law} to die a slow painful death. The battle for the right to die with dignity is no different that the battle against slavery, abortion, gay rights. It is not easy to change the way people sometimes think and have thought for centuries, sometimes millennia, We now know slavery to have been a horrible enterprise. Making a person live-out his or her life in pain or in an incapacitated state is just as terrible. Inside these pages is A NEW REALITY FOR TODAY'S DEATH. Terry Stocker details how he will try to control his own death. It may not come to fruition, but his main message is that there are vastly different, and better, ways to think about dying than the bizarre concepts Americans now live with. Is America really the land of science?" This book has 398 pages. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. Overall, this is a FINE copy of trhis VERY SCARCE title.

About this title

Synopsis:

A New Reality for Today's Death champions the Death with Dignity Movement. The U.S. is the most technological advanced country ever and yet it cannot provide a means for people to die peacefully without pain? That is insane! The United States needs new direction. Funerals? Terry Stocker steps beyond Jessica Mitford's The American Way of Death Revisited. Why have funerals at all? They are simply a continuation of Stone Age rituals. People can join in a group grieving session, but why the need for caskets and embalming? Finally, cemeteries are a "monumental" waste of land. Instead of having granite stone-markers, plant trees and turn the land into forests. Every day around the world, thousands of productive acres are given over to statements of egoism. Why?
